Big Apple Circus - Downtown: $30 for One Ringside Seat to Big Apple Circus (Up to $60 Value). Six Shows Available.

  • Thursday, May 12 at 6:30 p.m.

Profiled on the PBS series Circus, the international performers of Big Apple Circus stretch one ring to new limits with this year's original show, "Dance On!". From a ringside seat, eyes clearly catch the nuances of intricate acts, such as the Kenyan Boys, whose perplexing pole-shimmying has previously landed them performances at Walt Disney parks and during halftime shows for various NBA teams. Regina Dobrovitskaya, a gymnast since age 11 and a Russian since birth, puts her master's degree in sport gymnastics to work while dangling from the rafters from her Cloud Swing, and China's Hebei Wuqiao Acrobatic Troupe synchronizes lasso twirling and acrobaticizes monocycling to thumping drumbeats. Leading the charge is lovable clown Grandma, a marquis member of Big Apple since 1982 and inductee to the International Clown Hall of Fame who has also been seen on CBS's Circus of the Stars and with multiple appearances in Macy's famed Thanksgiving Day Parade and lesser-known Boxing Day Stand-Still. All Groupon purchasers will be seated in the ringside section, shown in blue on the seating chart. Parking discount at Central parking available with ticket stub; $10 for up to 5 hours on weekday evenings. Must surrender ticket stub to Central parking post-show to redeem parking discount. Group seating is also available.

Big Apple Circus

Warm in winter, cool in summer, and filled with amazing acts in every season, the Big Apple Circus's pair of Italian-made big tops contains the best of several generations' worth of circus traditions. A look at any show's cast finds a complex network of venerable European circus families passing the arts of juggling and trapeze artistry down through the years, while the tents' motors and seating make for a comfortably modern spectator experience.

You might never guess that the troupe started small in 1974, when American circus artists Paul Binder and Michael Christensen joined forces as a juggling act on the streets of Europe. They moved from streetlights to spotlights in a hurry, appearing on the stage of the Nouveau Cirque de Paris, before returning to the U.S. and creating their own not-for-profit circus in 1976 and raising their first tent in New York's Battery Park.
